10:11 pm
a revolutionary procedure is giving a paralyzed dog a new "leash" on life. cells from the nose were injected into the spinal cord. it may not have direct human implications reporter max foster says it may be a step in the right direction. >> reporter: this was just the injury in 2008. he couldn't move his hind legs. but thanks to a pioneering treatment, jasper went from being paralyzed to walking with the aid of a harness. and then finally, running by himself. scientists at the university of cambridge took the cells from jasper's nose and then injected them into the damaged spinal cord. the professor nicholas jeffrey designed the study. >> the cells that we use when they're in the nose, they usually help nerve fibers to grow from the nose into the brain. that is their normal function in the nose. so the idea is that when you transplant them into the spinal cord or anywhere else in the
10:12 pm
nervous system, then they might also help new nerve fibers to grow from one place to another. >> reporter: and it's not just jasper who's whizzing around the house again. the scientists say some of the other dogs in the study regained limited use of their hind legs. but the researchers acknowledge the procedure alone won't likely have any useful benefits for human spinal cord injury patients. >> i don't think there's ever going to be a quick fix for spinal cord injuries. >> reporter: he believes it's a small step in the right direction. max foster, london. more medical news when a medical emergency strikes, every second counts. and that's where a new iphone app can make the difference between life and death. cbs reporter wyatt andrews shows us how i triage can save lives. >> i'm convinced he would have died if i had waited. >> reporter: melissa says an app on the iphone helped to save her husband's life.
